Australian F1 superstar Daniel Ricciardo ‘is dating his stunning Red Bull colleague’ – a German events planner, 24, after finally moving on from his break-up with his high school sweetheart – reports Daily Mail.
Formula One superstar Daniel Ricciardo is in a relationship with a German colleague he partied into the night with following his recent Monaco Grand Prix win.
Despite sitting fourth on the F1 standings and being one of the hottest talents in the sport, it’s the personal life of the Australian ace that is reportedly the talk of pit lane.
Ricciardo, 28, was pictured partying with Annemarie Horbass, 24, an events manager for the Red Bull brand, following his monumental victory in Monte Carlo last month.
And sources close to Ricciardo confirmed to Daily Mail Australia the driver is now off the market, having been regularly spotted alongside Ms Horbass in recent times.
Ms Horbass is a regular on pit lane as an employee of German event management company Eventureline, who are aligned with Red Bull.
After Ricciardo’s enormous win at the Monaco GP in May, Ms Horbass joined him in celebration mode.
Seated next to one another on a luxury yacht with the Red Bull crew, they then both enjoyed a drink and dance at a Monaco nightclub.
Ricciardo’s colleagues have confirmed the relationship, but say it is still in the early stages and ‘nothing too serious just yet’.
A spokesperson for Red Bull Racing told Daily Mail Australia they do not ‘comment on personal matters’. Ms Horbass has also been contacted for comment.
A regular traveller for work, Ms Horbass often posts photos from some of the world’s most idyllic locations onto her social media.
She has also spent a large amount of time in Australia, sharing photos from Sydney Harbour and Victorian landmark The Twelve Apostles.
Ricciardo was previously in a long-term relationship with Jemma Boskovich, his high school sweetheart from his home town of Perth.
Having long been family friends, the couple’s romance kicked off when they went to their high school’s Year 12 ball together.
After dating for close to eight years they announced their split in 2016.
Ricciardo started his F1 career with Toro Rosso in 2012, racing with the brand for two seasons before switching to Red Bull.
Taking over from compatriot Mark Webber in 2014, he enjoyed a successful first year with three race victories and a third place finish in the overall standings.
There are estimates the Perth-born driver could demand a new deal worth more than $30million a season when he comes out of contract at the end of this year.
F1 powerhouse Ferrari has also been mooted as a potential suitor for his services should he not re-sign with Red Bull.
Starring behind the wheel in 2018, Ricciardo has recorded two victories from seven races.
